Here are just some of the risks associated with drinking fizzy drinks:
80% increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes
Increased risk of osteoporosis - the phosphorus in soft drinks deplete the body of calcium
Increased risk of developing heart disease due to the high fructose corn syrup
Dissolved tooth enamel
Increased risk of developing asthma and eczema
Increased risk of developing kidney stones and other renal problems
Increased risk of obesity
Increased risk of developing cancer thanks to aspartame which is often used in fizzy drinks.
Some people consume between 1 and 4 cans of fizzy drink a day which spikes blood sugar and blood pressure levels and puts major stress on your kidneys, liver and immune system.
The dangers of these drinks should be more acknowledged by the food industry and should certainly not be fed to children!
